Summary: All True Things is a critical history of the genesis and evolution of the University of Alberta and a splendid way to mark the Universityâ€™s centennial. Professor Emeritus of History and alumnus, Rod Macleod, relates the Universityâ€™s coming of age against the parallel history of the Province of Albertaâ€™s remarkable growth. All True Thingsâ€”a variation on the University of Albertaâ€™s motto, QuÃ¦cumque Vera, or, â€œWhatsoever Things Are Trueâ€â€”uncovers times of triumph and trouble by examining key people, circumstances, and decisions of that first century. What emerges is an enduring narrative of an institutional will to thrive and become a vibrant centre of learning. As the University embarks on its second century, this definitive source of information and reflection on institutional history and governance will inspire future leaders and policy makers and delight the University of Albertaâ€™s many friends far and wide.
